Simply Worth it

24th July 2016
A 3.30am start isn't my idea of a relaxing way to kick start a Sunday but needs must, when trying to get Roe Deer and Hares amongst the linseed field, mentioned in my previous post.

Having risen early I got to my designated spot for 4.45am and almost straight away the actioned began as I spied a beautiful fox slinking away in the neighbouring field. I wasn't sure what to hope for as harvesting of the neighbouring field had begun the previous day so I had thought that maybe everything had scattered. Within a few minutes though four, playful hares came bounding down the tramline straight towards me..as ever they got to close but I did manage a snap or two!



Once they had bounded away along came my second Roe Buck of the week. This one is highly distinctive with one antler much taller and straight than the other. I've nicknamed him One Horn Harry.



This time I did remember to breath and even tried calling him in with a squeak or two. Having walked a full circle around me..he barked as if to voice disapproval of my sound effects before leaping gazelle like through the crop and over the horizon.

I think I may be early to bed tonight as finding it difficult to now keep my eyes open but hope you'd agree the early start was worth it!
